Admiral Farragut Academy is committed to attracting diverse, motivated, and talented students of strong character. We believe enrollment should be open to all qualified applicants, not just to those who can pay full tuition. We offer options for families in need such as payment plans and need-based financial aid.
Types of Financial Aid Available
Financial aid is awarded at the beginning of each school year from a limited budget, so we encourage U.S. families to begin the process as early as possible. Families must reapply for financial aid each year. The amount of money awarded is not guaranteed and may differ from year to year based on need and availability of funds.

Please note: Dual-household families may be asked to submit separate applications.
Completed files will be reviewed in the order in which they are received. Financial aid is awarded on a first-come first-serve basis by the beginning of each school year.
Financial aid is not available prior to Kindergarten. Financial aid is not available for International students.
More About the Process
Requests for need-based financial aid are considered only after a student has received a letter of acceptance from our school, signed the contract, paid the deposit, and completed the online financial aid application through SSS. Current Farragut families are given priority consideration for aid and awards are made contingent on good financial standing. Awards are revoked should the account balance not be satisfied by the end of the academic year. Financial aid is distributed at the beginning of each school year. It is not available for mid-year transfers or second semester.
The award calculated by School & Student Services (SSS) is only a recommendation and does not necessarily represent the amount the family will be awarded. Admiral Farragut Academy’s Financial Aid Committee will discuss and decide on the amount awarded. Please note that it can take four to six weeks for Farragut to receive the recommendation report from SSS. Once a decision is made the family will be notified by letter from Farragut with the actual award amount. Due to the continuing increase in financial aid requests the committee’s philosophy is to “spread the funds” and help as many families as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions
How is eligibility for aid determined?
Prospective students must complete the admissions process and be offered a letter of acceptance. An enrollment contract and deposit must be completed prior to being considered for financial aid. Financial aid is available starting in Kindergarten to U.S. families only. Financial aid is completely disbursed by the beginning of each new school year.
Like many independent schools, Admiral Farragut uses the services of School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS), a third party administrator, to assist in determining a family’s ability to contribute to educational expenses. Our Financial Aid Committee uses this assessment along with a Parent Financial Statement (PFS) and any additional information regarding special circumstances to make financial aid award decisions, taking into consideration our financial aid budget for any given year. As a result, Farragut’s calculated parent contribution may differ from the SSS calculation.
For example, Farragut will consider the potential for income to be earned by an able, non-working parent who does not have children under the age of four at home.
